Last Tuesday, the Lady Miners Water Polo team had their first preseason game in Porterville against Monache High School. Unfortunately, with a score of 16-4, the Miners did not get the win. It was a tough first game for the girls as they start off their season. Captain Bridget Cahill says, ”It was a learning experience for the team. We were able to see what we need to improve on to make us a stronger team.” Although it was a tough game for the Miners, they hung in and never gave up. Emily Helpio and Mandy McCaslin both scored one goal along with Andy Morales scoring two goals to put the Miners up on the scoreboard. The girls know what they did and also what they need to do to have a better outcome throughout the season.
